I was a bit of an unusual case for liposuction and mesotherapy. I am a very fit, 110 lb. 30-year-old female who runs marathons and fitness trains athletes on the side. I am very athletic and lean, but have always had a trouble spot – my abdomen. I have been doing 10-20 minutes of hard-core abdominal exercises a day, 4-6 days a week for the last 7 years. But no matter how hard I worked, I could not achieve the “6-pack” that I felt would reflect all the hard work I put in. In my line of work, I felt that I just did not look “believable” to the people I trained because I did not have the abdomen to match my tough workouts. I knew my muscles were toned, but I had always had a layer of fat that was just thick enough to cover my definition. I began doing research and visiting doctors. I went on 3 other consultations before I found Dr. Colony. I was already extremely apprehensive and self-conscious, because I feared that all of these doctors would treat me like I was crazy, like I had a distorted body image or something because I am already pretty fit-looking. And, much to my dismay, they did!
Because I stuck to the great after-care instructions that the staff provided for me, I was seeing amazing results after only about 6 weeks after my surgery. I finally had an actual 6-pack, and was getting so many compliments! And true to his thorough and kind nature, Dr. Colony was kind enough to include mesotherapy to help trim those last few pockets to really make my abs pop. It has been almost 6 months since I had the surgery, and I cannot stop looking at my new abdomen. I finally feel comfortable and confident training in my sports bra to cool off on really hot days.
